Train Lines in Singapore

A railway systems line is a communication path composed of rails used only by railroad vehicles. One or more parallel running lanes form a path between two points referred to lines. There are as many lines as routes to exclusive tracks, given a segmented network consists of two or more lines running parallel.

Introduction

The primary means of railroad transportation on the island nation of Singapore is the Mass Rapid Transit system, or MRT. After 20 years of development, the system finally went into operation in November 1987 with a 6 km (3.7 mi) stretch had five stations. To Singapore’s goal to create a comprehensive rail network as the backbone of the nation’s public transportation system, the network has since expanded to cover the length and breadth of the main island of country, except the rural northwestern region and the forested core. As of 2019, the network carried an average of 3.4 million passengers.

The standard gauge, grade-separated MRT network spans 216 kilometres (134 mi). A circle-radial topology used to arrange the 127 operational stations (28 are interchange stations) over the six lines. Due to ongoing extension work on its current lines and the development of three new lines, the network’s length expected to double by 2040 to 400 kilometres (250 mi). The island-wide heavy rail network connects to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system, a collection of automated guideway transit networks suburban towns supplement. The mainline serves a last-mile connection between MRT station and HDB public housing estates.

How many train lines are there in Singapore?

In Singapore, three light rail lines and five metro lines together known as the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems. MRT lines are colour-coded, while LRT lines marked with a grey outline. Two private businesses, SMRT Corporation and SBS Transit, run these rapid transit lines a contractual basis. In addition, other people-mover systems at Sentosa Island and Changi Airport are not part of the rail network. A future RTS link will take the place of the KTM West Coast Main Line, which now provides rail services to Malaysia. A High-Speed Rail connection to Kuala Lumpur additionally built.

Mass Rapid Transit (MRT):

The Singapore metro system, known as the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), runs a vast network of railway lines and offers daily passenger rail service across the island. There are currently 5 MRT lines in Singapore totaling 152.9 km of route, 113 stations, and new MRT lines and expansions are being planned and built by the Land Transport Authority. SBS Transit and SMRT Trains are two public transport network operators  that offer train service. They typically run from 5:30 am to 12:30 am the following day, with longer hours on the eve of public holidays typically accompanied by extended bus running hours.

Mass Rapid Transit MRT 1

Other Rail Lines:

Because they are privately owned and run, Singapore’s other rail lines are exempt from the regulatory requirements placed on rapid transit lines. The automated people mover (APM) network that shuttles between airport terminals currently run by Changi Airport Group, or Changi Airport Skytrain. The Sentosa Development Corporation also runs the Sentosa Express Monorail, which provides access to the mainland and within Sentosa island.

The Rolling Stock

The Rolling Stock

On the Singapore rail network, various rolling stock is used, including low- and high-capacity trains on LRT lines and high- and medium-capacity trains on MRT lines. All passenger trains are electric multiple units (EMUs), which get their power from overhead or electrified lines. All passenger trains are electric multiple units (EMUs), which get there from overhead or electrified lines.

North South Line

The North-South Line (NSL), Singapore’s first MRT line and a high-capacity MRT line, runs through Central Singapore and links the northern and southern parts of the island. Today, SMRT is in charge of running it. The NSL is 44 km long, has 27 stations, and runs from Jurong East (NS1) in the west to Marina South Pier (NS28) in the south through Woodlands (NS9) in the north. Station code NS6 reserved for use in the future (Sungei Kadut). More than half of the line’s length covered by elevated viaducts remaining brief stretches of its route—between Bishan and Marina South Pier in the Central Area—are underground.

The North-South Line’s Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains run in a six-car formation based out of Bishan Depot and Ulu Pandan Depot. The East-West Line, which connects to the North-South Line at Jurong East and Raffles Place/City Hall, also uses the same rolling stock. Train services are currently available between Jurong East and Marina South Pier.

The North-South Line begins from Jurong East on the western edge of Singapore, travels through Woodlands and turns north before turning south through Central Singapore to Marina South Pier. Significant residential communities it travels through include Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Woodlands, Sembawang, Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, and Toa Payoh.

The route runs underground in the Central Area (between Bishan and Marina South Pier) rather than on elevated viaducts, at-grade sections, or tunnels to prevent the need for surface-level track construction. There are two tunnels: one connects Bukit Batok and Bukit Gombak via a hill, and the other connects Kranji and Marsiling beneath Woodlands Avenue 3. Between Khatib and Yio Chu Kang, the latter being the great distance between two MRT stations in Singapore, and Bukit Gombak and Choa Chu Kang are at-grade stretches of track. Bishan station, located on this line, is the sole at-grade stop in the MRT system.

East West Line (EWL)

The East-West Line (EWL) is a high-capacity MRT line connects the eastern and western extremities island via Central Singapore. It was the second MRT line to open in Singapore. SMRT Trains now runs the operation. With 35 stops and distance 56.6 km from Pasir Ris (EW1) to Tuas Link, the EWL is now the longest MRT line (EW33). Changi Airport (CG2) is connected to Tanah Merah (EW4 | CG) through Expo (CG1/DT35) via a separate branch line known as the Changi Airport Branch Line. The line’s length spent on elevated viaducts in the Central Area (between Kallang and Redhill) close to the airport route is underground (between Expo to Changi Airport).

In a tiny area between Bedok and Kembangan, trains also travel underground beneath New Upper Changi Road. With the replacement of the current Changi Depot by the upcoming East Coast Integrated Depot, trains on the East West Line run in a six-car formation from the Changi, Ulu Pandan, and Tuas Depots. Additionally, the rolling stock utilised on the North South Line connects to the East West Line at Jurong East and Raffles Place/City Hall.

At alternative train services run between Pasir Ris and Joo Koon Pasir Ris and Tuas Link the Changi Airport Branch Line serves as a shuttle train between Tanah Merah and Changi Airport. The East West Line travels from Pasir Ris in the east of Singapore to Jurong Industrial Estate in the west, passing through significant residential communities such Tampines, Bedok, Kallang, Redhill, Queenstown, Clementi, Jurong East, and Boon Lay. In particular, between Tanah Merah – City Hall and Queenstown – Boon Lay, much of its route follow already-existing thoroughfares. The line, elevated for most of its length, travels below ground in the Central Area (between Kallang and Redhill) and close to Changi Airport to prevent the construction of tracks at ground level. Between Kembangan and Bedok, Siglap Hill traversed by another tunnel.

North East Line

The third rail line in Singapore, the North East Line (NEL), connects Central Singapore to the North Eastern districts and is a high-capacity, driverless, underground MRT line. From HarbourFront (NE1) to Punggol, the route now stretches 19.2 kilometres and has 16 stations (NE17). When it first built, the NEL, which used a CBTC signalling system based on radio, was the world’s first fully automated underground heavy rail line. The rolling stock is based out of the Sengkang Depot, an at-grade facility right off Sengkang East Avenue, and operates in six-car formations.

By 2024, NE18 Punggol Coast will be a new North-East Line Extension (NELe) located in the Punggol Downtown area. Based on the initial projected 2030 timeline was advanced by six years. The North East Lin intended to connect the Hougang and Serangoon housing estates in the Northeast to the City while enhancing train links in the City’s Clarke Quay, Chinatown, and Outram Park neighbourhoods. Sengkang and Punggol, two new towns that are fast-growing, would also benefit from it.

Circle Line

The Circle Line (CCL) is Singapore’s fourth rail line and an underground, driverless, medium-capacity MRT line that travels in a circular pattern through residential neighbourhoods and connects all circumferential routes. Currently, the line connects Dhoby Ghaut (CC1) with HarbourFront (CC29) through Serangoon, is 35.5 kilometres long and has 30 stations. Promenade (CC4) and Marina Bay (CE2) are connected via Bayfront by a different branch line known as the Circle Line Extension (CE1).

The line is also Singapore’s first medium-capacity rail line; trains run on it in three-car formations are half as long as the typical six-car formation used on earlier lines. The rolling stock housed in Kim Chuan Depot, which bills itself as the underground railway depot in the world. The Circle Line will completed by a future line expansion known as “Circle Line Stage 6,” which is expected to be finished in 2026 and will close the Circle Line’s circular path between HarbourFront and Marina Bay with three extra stops.

Downtown Line

The North-Western and Central-Eastern sectors are linked to the new downtown by the Downtown Line (DTL), an underground, driverless, medium-capacity MRT line. The line, which connects Bukit Panjang (DT1) to Sungei Bedok (DT37) via downtown, will be fully operational when it is around 44 km long with 36 stations (DT17). Only 34 stations, from Bukit Panjang (DT1) to Expo (DT35), are currently accessible to passengers. With only structural requirements, Hume Station (reserved station code DT4) is a shell station that will be renovated and opened around 2025.

By finishing the circle path between HarbourFront and Marina Bay with three stations, the ‘Circle Line Stage 6’ line expansion expected to finish in 2026 will complete the Circle Line. In 2024, the Downtown Line Stage 3e, a planned extension, will open and extend the line from its current Expo terminus to Sungei Bedok (DT37) through Xilin (DT36). It will connect to the East Coast Integrated Depot, which will have levels for the East West Line, Thomson-East Coast Line, and Downtown Line trains, as well as the Thomson-East Coast Line. The Downtown Line Stage 2e will open in the middle of the 2030s and will be a different future extension will extend the line from its current northern Bukit Panjang terminus to Sungei Kadut.

Thomson-East Coast Line

The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) connects the Northern and Eastern areas via the Central region and the new downtown. It is subterranean, driverless MRT line. When fully operational, the line would connect Sungei Bedok (TE31) and Woodlands North (TE1) via the Thomson, Stevens, Orchard, Marina Bay, Tanjong Rhu, Marine Parade, and Upper East Coast. It will be around 43 km long with 32 stations. With the Singapore-Johor Bahru RTS Link, the northern end connected.

The planned Thomson Route (TSL) and Eastern Region Line combined to create the line, which first announced on August 15, 2014. (ERL). From 2020 to 2025, it will gradually open (although slated to open by Year 2019). The TEL is connected to all five current MRT lines by seven interchange stations, enhancing the rail network resiliency by giving commuters on other lines alternate options. The TEL anticipated to begin serving passengers by 2025 when it is completely operational, and over time, it anticipates carrying about one million commuters daily.

What are the MRT lines in Singapore?

The lines divided across six lines with more than 120 stations, totaling more than 200 kilometres (about 124 miles). By 2040, the MRT lines anticipated doubling in length, reaching a total distance of almost 400 kilometres (about 250 miles). The six lines currently in place will increase three more lines will construct to achieve this. With all of its transit lines combined, Singapore’s MRT is Southeast Asia’s most expensive, utilised, lengthy, and extensive MRT system. Additionally, it is renowned for having the longest stretch of completely automated railway lines with driverless trains in the entire globe.

Singapore’s MRT stations include codes in addition to names depending on the names lines positions of stations on a map for that particular line and route, making it simple for travellers to find their way. The interchange codes also make it simpler to locate stations where you can change trains and transfer to another MRT or Light Rapid Transit line. The tourists and residents of Singapore aware the name of the station they need to go. They might be unaware, however, that some of the station names have fascinating backstories and origins that explain how they came to bear their current names. In the Dakota region on the Circle Line, for instance, the station Dakota given name in honour of the numerous commercial Dakota DC-3 aircraft. If interested, an article on these stations is available.

Thomson–East Coast MRT line

Another fascinating aspect about the stations is that majority underground ones are fortified and deep enough to act as bomb shelters and constructed to withstand aerial bombing strikes. Residents in the east and along the North-South Corridor will be closer to a rail station thanks to the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), which will also give them quicker access.

Instead of the 50 minutes it currently takes to go from Woodlands South to Orchard by bus and MRT, commuters will benefit from a 35-minute trip on the TEL. Make use of the eight interchanges that connect to all of the major lines, including the East-West Line (EWL), North-South Line (NSL), North-East Line (NEL), Circle Line (CCL), Downtown Line (DTL), and the Cross Island Line, to enjoy more route possibilities (CRL). The line will ease congestion on the East-West and North-South Lines and provide convenience to around 1 million commuters daily when fully finished.

The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) connects the Northern and Eastern areas via the Central region and the new downtown. It is entirely underground driverless MRT line. When fully operational, the line would connect Sungei Bedok (TE31) and Woodlands North (TE1) via the Thomson, Stevens, Orchard, Marina Bay, Tanjong Rhu, Marine Parade, and Upper East Coast. It will be around 43 km long with 32 stations. With the Singapore-Johor Bahru RTS Link, the northern end connected. The planned Thomson Route (TSL) and Eastern Region Line combined to create the line, which first announced on August 15, 2014. (ERL).

Cross Island Line (CRL)

With a length of more than 50 kilometres, our eighth MRT line, the Cross Island Route (CRL), will be the longest subsurface line. It will connect important centres such Jurong Lake District, Punggol Digital District, and Changi region, as well as current and prospective projects in the eastern, western, and north-eastern corridors. With over half of the line’s stations connected to existing rail stations, it will have the most interchange stations when fully operational. It means you have more options for how to get where you’re going.

Phase 1 of the CRL (CRL1), which spans 29 kilometres and built in three sections, will have 12 stops between Aviation Park and Bright Hill. Residential and commercial districts, includes Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North, and Ang Mo Kio, will benefit from this. CRL1 will serve more than 100,000 homes, while open recreational areas like Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will also be made accessible by public transportation. The first phase of CRL1’s construction has started and expected to be finished by 2030. About 15 kilometres long, the CRL Phase 2 (CRL2) features six underground stations: Turf City, King Albert Park, Maju, Clementi, West Coast, and Jurong Lake District. CRL2’s environmental impact study has finished, and the reports are now available for public comment.

There are commuters travelling between eastern areas like Pasir Ris and Tampines North and north-eastern like Punggol and Sengkang to the 7.3-kilometre CRL – Punggol Extension will have four fully underground stations. The end of 2022, building on the CRL-Punggol Extension anticipated beginning, with a 2032 completion date as the goal.

Changi Airport (CG2) is connected to Tanah Merah (EW4 | CG) through Expo (CG1/DT35) via a separate branch line known as the Changi Airport Branch Line. The line’s length spent on elevated viaducts in the Central Area (between Kallang and Redhill) close to the airport route is underground (between Expo to Changi Airport).

In a tiny area between Bedok and Kembangan, trains also travel underground beneath New Upper Changi Road. With the replacement of the current Changi Depot by the upcoming East Coast Integrated Depot, trains on the East West Line run in a six-car formation from the Changi, Ulu Pandan, and Tuas Depots. Additionally, the rolling stock utilised on the North South Line connects to the East West Line at Jurong East and Raffles Place/City Hall.

 The moment, alternative train services run between Pasir Ris and Joo Koon Pasir Ris and Tuas Link, and the Changi Airport Branch Line serves as a shuttle train between Tanah Merah and Changi Airport.

The East-West Line (EWL), which stretches 57 kilometres across the island from Tuas Link to Pasir Ris, is the longest train line currently in Singapore. In 1987, it was extended southward toward Outram from its original North-South Line (NSL) location. In 1990, the ‘original’ line, which terminated at Boon Lay MRT station, was finished. Today, the line will take you from Changi Airport to Pasir Ris’s recreational areas or in the direction of Geylang and Tiong Bahru’s renowned food districts. After a few stations at significant intersections on the outskirts city and in the CBD, the line continues west via the school district’ of polytechnics and universities at Dover and Clementi before entering the sizable Jurong township and Tuas industrial park. The Jurong East MRT station is one of the busiest train interchanges/terminal stations on the EW NS Lines and has a 35 stations.

How many MRT lines does Singapore have?

How many LRT lines are there in Singapore?

The Light Train Transit (LRT) serves as the “feeder service” for the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), offering rail connections for inhabitants of housing estates to the closest MRT station as well as for short-distance travel within a housing estate. In Singapore, 3 LRT lines serve 43 stops spread across four residential estates along a 28.8 kilometre route. Time Land Transport Authority has no announced intentions to expand or create new LRT lines. SBS Transit and SMRT Light Rail are two public transport operators (PTOs) that provide LRT services. They typically work from 5:00 am to 1:00 am the next day extend hours on Public eves. The Skytrain LRT network is run by Singapore’s national aviation authority Civil Aviation Authority located inside Changi International Airport.

Bukit Panjang LRT Line

Residential developments in Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang served by the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit (BPLRT), a light rail route. The first completely automated and driverless train station system Singapore, the 7.8-kilometre, debuted on November 6, 1999. The line runs in single-car and double-car configurations and utilises rubber-tyred automates people movers (APM 100) and guideway technology from Alstom (formerly Bombardier). The Bukit Panjang LRT employs Service Letters are different from other train lines in Singapore to identify its direction of travel and final destination. It is because the line, which splits off at Bukit Panjang Station, has a peculiar, non-linear geometry.

When trains departing from Choa Chu Kang split directions at Bukit Panjang station, they will do either a clockwise or an anticlockwise loop before arriving back at Bukit Panjang station. The Bukit Panjang LRT was built with stations inside the Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang neighbourhood, connecting to the heavy-rail North South Line and Downtown Lines, to bring the MRT network closer to people. It completes the two estates’ current trunk and feeder bus services well.

Punggol LRT Line

Punggol LRT operated by SBS Transit, the Punggol Light Rail Transit (PGLRT) is a light rail route that serves housing developments in Punggol New Town. After the Sengkang LRT, the 10.3-kilometer network is Singapore’s second LRT system. The inaugurated on January 29, 2005, runs on rubber-tired automated people movers called Crystal Mover rolling stock from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. There are single-car and double-car versions of these vehicles.

Sengkang LRT Line

Operated by SBS Transit, the Sengkang Light Rail Transit (SKLRT) is a light rail route that serves housing developments in Sengkang New Town. After the Bukit Panjang LRT, the 10.7-kilometre network is Singapore’s second LRT system. The line began service on January 18, 2003, using Crystal Mover rolling stock from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. These automated people movers have rubber tyres and may configure as single- or double-car trains. Both loops and the North East Line converge at Sengkang station, which situated in the town centre. For both loops, LRT train services run. 

Is LRT the same as MRT?

MRT and LRT both employ moving trains powered by electricity to transport passengers. According to size and capacity, MRT has a greater degree than LRT. Despite being smaller, LRT can still carry passengers depending on how frequently they go each day which determine by headway. The MRT derives its electricity from overhead cable LRT uses third rail technology, a novel development in Indonesian rail history. Regarding the trains, LRT employs the third rail containing MRT uses two rails as its driving force.

Which is fast or MRT?

If a person is commuting within Singapore, they typically prefer the LRT. There are numerous stops on the LRT designed to assist travellers in getting to their final destination. In comparison to the MRT, the LRT is shorter in length. The LRT, however, moves more slowly. LRT trains move more slowly than MRT cars. Faster than the LRT system is the MRT system.

How many MRT trains are there in Singapore?

The planning began in the 1960s for Singapore’s mass rapid transit system led to the launch of the 6 km segment of the North South Line from Yio Chu Kang to Toa Payoh in 1987, which marked the system’s official opening. It was time infrastructure undertaking the nation made in its early years of independence.

 Early in the 1960s, the only public transportation options in Singapore were buses, taxis, and trishaws lack of seamless integration of the public transportation system led to lengthy and uncomfortable commutes. In service as of 2021 are six lines with a combined route length of 216 kilometres (134 mi) and 127 stops. A feeder service to the MRT network provided the Light Rail Transit, which debuted in 1999. From Bartley to Marymount, 5.6 km of the Circle Line went into service on May 28, 2009.
